If you want to play any of the thousands of DVDs imported from any of the other FOUR REGIONS? You need to make your DVD player (or your Windows PC or Mac) REGION FREE, try download region-free software to unlock your DVD player, and make it can play ntsc hindi songs.

Good luck!

Is the 'DVD-Super Multi DL Drive' on the Acer 5742 Aspire basically a DVD rewriter, or does it just play DVD's?


This Super-Multi Drive will write to dual layer DVDs (DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL) at a 4x speed. The full specs of the Acer 5742 are available here: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/2010/Acer/Aspire/Aspire5742/Aspire5742sp2.shtml .

You should be able to place a dual layer dvd in the drive and have it recognized. Windows may ask you if you want to format the disc.

I hope this helps.

Acer one. want to play dvd I bought in Bali, Have external drive. Do i have to have special software. it is ntsc. bought computer in usa


Try downloading VLC media player (freeware). It will play a DVD without a special decoder needed. Computers don't really care about NTSC or PAL. If you want to convert for home DVD player try WinAVI or ConvertX to DVD, both will allow conversion to and from NTSC and PAL formats.

PHILIPS CDRW/DVD SCB5265 ATA Device cannot play most DVDs


I'm guessing you may have locked the DVD region. If you right-click on the device in Device Manager and click the Region tab, does it say 0 changes available? Acer won't fix this, and claim you have to replace the drive. Can't find a firmware flash for this drive online, will post back here if successful!

Hi there,

Try downloading the most current Chipset drivers from Acer:

This sorts out most blank media problems. Also, you could try a dvd/cd lens cleaner.

Hope that helps

Drive can't read DVD


Jeff - If you have not changed your software configuration in any way since the last time you could successfully play a DVD, it could be that the drive has failed. You can test this most easily by taking these DVD's that won't play in your Acer now, and play them in another good computer, or a regular home DVD player. If they play in your other systems/players, you will see right away. And if the machine is that new, you might be able to get it easily fixed under your manfuacturer's warranty.

If you have made any kind of changes to your system software that could affect your dvd burner, that could cause it to not recognize them perhaps, as well. By changes I mean - installing some kind of alternative dvd playing software than what came with your machine, etc. If you did not make any software changes, it is likely a hardware problem.
